The Card Concept Challenge #189 A & B: Cozy Comfort or Cozy Hearts


Hello my stampy friends!!!

I hope everyone had a fun Valentine's Day!

As you can see...our challenge at 


features hearts!!!

And this is the time of the month that you get to choose one or both of the Inspiration Photos!

You can choose one or both Inspiration boards to create a paper project!

I was inspired by the colors and patchwork of 
the Cozy Comfort #189a photo, to create my 
Clean & Layered style cards.

~Clean lines
~Lots of Layers
~Designer papers, embossing
~Clean & Fresh looking
~Some colored images
~White space

Here are my cards:

These cards were so much fun to make!
I learned this technique by watching a YouTube video by Maymay Made It.
If you want to learn this technique, you can find her HERE!

After I made this quilted heart, I adhered it to a black heart embossed card stock.

And this one I adhered to some pattern paper.
I'm not sure which one that I like best!!!!

I hope that I have inspired you to join our challenges!
